Sweet Halloween Treat

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Sweet treats are one of the best things about Halloween, and packaging them for someone special makes them even sweeter!  The Seasonal Chums bundle – stamp set and framelits – is an ideal way of making fun little tags for any gift, and this Halloween treat is no exception.

This little box is super easy to make and fit my treat perfectly.  They also fit small chocolates nicely too!  The dimensions are as follows:

Box Base:

  • Basic Black Cardstock
  • Cut at 9″ x 6 1/2″
  • Score at 1″ and 2 1/2″ on all 4 sides
  • Cut scorelines to create box sides and tabs (follow diagram)
  • Fold sides inwards, adhere for stability
  • Insert treat

Sleeve:

  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
  • Cut at 6 5/8″ x 4 1/16″
  • Score along the long side at 1/2″, 2″, 3 9/16″, and 5 1/16″
  • Use framelits to cut out opening in lid
  • Stamp and decorate as desired
  • Apply adhesive to 1/2″ scored section and attach to opposite end.
  • Slide sleeve over Box Base

I filled my treat box with these Pumpkin Spice Rolls by Little Debbie.  Yum!  Don’t tell, but I’ve totally been cheating on my diet every night, sneaking one just before bed (after the kids are already dreaming, of course).

You know the pumpkin craze when fall is approaching – and there is a big debate as to when it is okay to crave pumpkin EVERYTHING.  I’m not on either side, but I will tell you I wouldn’t mind if these things were available year round!

Sharing in Sorrow

Tags

, , , ,

We share experiences with others through life and death, and sending a card is a great way of connecting with people during those moments.  Sympathy cards are never easy to send, but they offer the opportunity to encourage and pray for those who are morning a loss of a loved one (including pets).

Sympathy cards aren’t always easy to start making either, so I find that beginning with a CASE is best.  This allows for creativity to start flowing and then the rest of the cards come easier.

Sympathy Cards / Catalog CASE / Lovely as a Tree stamp set / Thoughts & Prayers stamp set / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I had already decided to feature the Lovely as a Tree stamp set – one of those never failing, always strong sets that can be used every year and every occasion.  And it just so happened that the samples provided in this year’s annual catalog offered just the right style for this project on page 137.

SU1718 pg137

I even liked the watercolor background technique and colors!  You can either use markers or ink pads to apply color to your clear block.  Then use a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water to wet the ink, allowing the colors to blend.  Stamp on cardstock or watercolor paper and allow to dry (use a heat tool if you’re impatient like me).

Colorful Seasons Bundle

Bundles

Have you seen all the bundles offered in Stampin’ Up!’s annual catalog this year?  They are all amazing, but my favorite is the Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Bundle.

I just love that this bundle makes it easy to transition to every season.  And with Fall well on its way, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these gorgeous maple leaves.  For my card today I used a couple of techniques to create layers of color in Crushed Curry, Berry Burst, and Old Olive.  These colors are perfect for early Fall as the colors just begin to reveal themselves. Finally, Gold Foil and Gold Glimmer Paper offer just the right amount of shimmer and shine.

Colorful Season stamp set / Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies / fall inspired cards / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

Create for every season with the colorful and versatile products in the Color Theory suite, featured in the 2017-2018 annual catalog by Stampin’ Up! The products in this suite feature beautiful brushstrokes with nature-inspired colors and images.

Simply Beautiful Card Set

Tags

, , ,

As my kids head back to school, I like to prepare personalized gifts for each of their teachers.  Little gifts to welcome them back to school are a delightful way to start the year.  Teachers are always sending notes, so I think it is nice to give a box of hand-crafted cards that they can use throughout the year to give to students, parents, volunteers, or their own loved ones.  This month’s Paper Pumpkin was a beautiful kit for a card box set that happened to be perfect for the type of card set I wanted to give this year!

Thank you cards boxed gift set / Aug 2018 Paper Pumpkin / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I made a set of these Thank You cards with coordinating envelopes.  They fit nicely in a vibrant matching box.  The entire set is boxed up with an acrylic lid and then tied with ribbon and a tag.  I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this card set and packaging!  Just lovely!
